The town of Ierapetra is southeast, at the narrowest crossing of the island. It is easily seen from the sea and on approach the Venetian castle and clock tower in the harbour become evident. There are 2 buoys at the mouth of the harbour marking submerged rocks. The entrance is between these and the harbour wall. Ierapetra has good shopping for all provisions. Fuel refill can be arranged and water is on the quay. There are post and telephone offices as well as banks. There are Harbour Police and Customs authorities. Ierapetra is not a Port of Entry. There is a General Hospital, private doctors, dentists, and pharmacies. There is a ramp for small boats. The harbour has stern-to and bow-to moorings providing good shelter in all weather conditions except strong southerlies. There is a light on the SE harbour wall. Night entry should not be attempted because of the narrow harbour mouth and difficult approach. There are submerged rocks off the entrance.
